Doug_Ray Home Plate Bar-B-Que (Sanlitun) February 12
Yeah, title says it all -- the pulled pork here really lives up to the hype. Really great meat and sauce, with a real authentic American BBQ flavor. I like the sides as well. Creamed corn -- can't get that anywhere else really I don't think. Atmosphere is great too, with a smokey sort of classic BBQ house vibe. Probably the best American-style BBQ I've had in Beijing.
